Fruit meets the barnyard

Description: Medium to light garnet in colour with a medium intense nose. This wine features pine, cherry, plum, raspberry, mushrooms, sage, vanilla, dried leaves and barnyard notes on the nose. Medium body with dusty tannin, good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: Some heat from the 14.5% alcohol

Interesting Note: A little overpriced for what you get

Drink now or in 3 years on its own or pair it with Pork Chops with Romesco and Creamy Polenta.

Tasted: 27 October 2016

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 7.5+/10 Total: 17/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5
